There were some stand-out performances in the Seconds, none less than skipper Sam McCrow’s five wickets, which set up the win, and a mature knock of 44 from teenager Ollie Pitts to guide the successful chase. But the award this week goes to the Thirds’ Ed Wright for a truly special innings of 50 not out in just 31 balls, coupled with two really smart catches and a near-immaculate display behind the stumps. The Thirds have struggled with the bat this season so fingers crossed that Ed’s superb effort proves a turning point in this campaign
Every week, the chairman will select the player who has produced the most extraordinary cricketing performance of the weekend programme. It won’t necessarily be the highest scorer nor the bowler who has the best figures but someone who has produced that little bit of magic to win a game or turn a match around. We hope his or her team-mates join the celebration by paying for their drinks at the bar.
